German coach Fritz Zdunek, who trains WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko and British cruiserweight Ola Afolabi, has advised Marco Huck to forget his pursuit of a fight with Vitali, who doesn't have a set opponent for his upcoming fall return on either September 1 or September 8 in Germany.
Huck (34-2-1, 25KOs) put forth a very good account of himself in February, when he made his heavyweight debut and lost a controversial twelve round majority decision to WBA "regular" champion Alexander Povetkin. He returned back to cruiserweight in May, and fought to a twelve round draw with Afolabi. Many experts felt Huck should have been awarded the fights with Povetkin and Afolabi.
"Based on what Marco Huck displayed in his fight with Afolabi, Vitali would simply gobble him up. He would not last the distance. Yes, in the sixth and ninth rounds he created some very serious problems for Ola, but I think that Marco should not make statements to the heavyweight champion or discuss a fight with Klitschko," Zdunek said.
